I bought a catnip cdi on ebay in January 2022 for $29 shipped from zholding.
It was delivered as promised and in usual shipping time….a good deal…I was happy with the purchase. I had no idea who I bought this item from but I was happy to get it at that price.
I looked to buy another catnip cdi on ebay from the same vendor, zholding, a month ago. The listing was still up except now instead of being listed for $29 the listing is for $200.
It was and still is listed in stock, more than 10 available, for $200 each.
I understand a business has the right to sell a product at any price they choose…capitalism in America…inflation?
I had to inquire… $29>>>$200… a few months separating the price increase..how can this be correct?
I sent zholding an email asking how he can justify the price increase from $29 to $200 just a few months later and was told it’s out of stock and listed at $200 so people do not try to buy the out of stock item.
If it’s out of stock the listing would be taken down and not show in stock with more than 10 available.
I think I would have rather been told the truth… I’m the only one with these cdi’s… nobody else has them…so now I can charge what ever I want and if you want another it’ll be $200 or you do not get one….instead of being lied to.
If it wasn’t such a high price I would tested the out of stock statement by purchasing one but $200 to get the truth is a little too steep.
If I had been told the truth I would have no issues maybe buying something else from zholding that is not awfully over priced. Now…, I’m not too sure. It’s no way to do business…and I do not mean the $200 price…the price is his to choose. It’s up to me to accept his price if I want it.
I’m talking about not being honest about availability.
If I was not lied to about this matter the listing showing more than 10 available for $200 each would not be still up.
I have to eat some crow here…
The listing for this CDI is now back at $31.
I owe CMB/zholding an apology for my post. The CDI must have been out of stock.
It just seems odd to list an item at 10’s the ordinary price and show more than 10 available if it is out of stock. It would be just as easy to list it,”Sold Out” or “Out of Stock.”
The way it was listed someone could have clicked buy now button for the higher price.
What ever the deal.. sorry I added negative trash to the vendor review. In hindsight it was unwarranted.
My original purchase was good. I think I had stated this before.
I ordered another one a few days ago.
